“Tykia was very lively. She had lots of friends here. They were both really good students,” Brooks said. “Darryl was becoming to come into himself as a student.”

It was just before 2 a.m. when the home went up in flames.
Neighbors say the glow of the blaze lit up a dark sky and black smoke filled the air.
“We pretty much knew at that point they were gone,” neighbor Brandon Jones said.
Fire officials say the fire started in the basement of the home, the flames then traveling all the up until they shot out of the roof. All five victims were found in the back bedroom.
One of them was two-year-old K’nyah Scott.
Brooks says a crisis management team is now available for students and teachers. The school now using this tragedy as a lesson for others.
“We will have persons from fire department to meet with our students to talk about safety,” Brooks said.
And one of the lessons will be the importance of having working smoke detectors. This home had three but non of them were working.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The grandfather who jumped to safety remains in the hospital.
